President Lincoln’s Cottage

7834904309843095384th reason why living near DC is the best. President Lincoln spent a quarter of his presidency at this cottage as a getaway, yet somehow I had no idea this house existed until about a year ago.

What I learned/experienced:

  • Arlington Cemetery was built after the cemetery on this ground got too crowded
  • It’s located on the Armed Forces Retirement Home campus, which feels 1. not like anything in D.C. and furthermore 2. feels fake, like you’re on a movie set
  • The tour was led by a guide and heavily integrated with technology, which I liked, but Kris thought it took away from the authenticity of the house
  • We had fun at the museum

Goal completed.
